I want to be first

Jesus said "The first shall be last...." It always fascinates me when I read how backward everything seems to be in the Bible. The weak are strong, the first are last, the rich are poor, the greatest are the least and on and on.

How amazing it is that we don't have to 'be' anything, and most of all we don't have to 'be' what the world typically celebrates as great.

Why is it then we spend so much time trying to be first and rich and strong? Our competitive flesh I guess - such a waste of time.

Tonight I am just thankful that He excepts me as I am... and it's really pretty easy after all to be the least. That's all He asks - so cool!
